Joseph J. Tinguely Author of Evaluating Organization Development

Joseph J. Tinguely

Assistant Professor of Philosophy
University of South Dakota

I use the history of philosophy to and from Kant as a way clarify contemporary philosophical problems concerning intentionality, receptivity, and normativity. My writings depart from the idea that aesthetics is not a branch but a root of philosophy. I am drawn to music and literature, and I tend to see philosophy as a social and political enterprise.

Subjects: Philosophy


I grew up and returned to the Great Plains. I received a PhD in philosophy from the New School for Social Research, writing a dissertation about the aesthetic elements of intentionality using Kant's _Critique of Judgment_. I teach in the philosophy program at the University of South Dakota.
